Review:

Praise for Camilla Lackberg: 'Mesmerising ... It's Lackberg's particular skill to have created two of the most fully rounded characters in contemporary crime fiction, with a warmth that cuts right through the Nordic chill' Independent 'Lackberg is an expert at mixing scenes of domestic cosiness with blood-curdling horror... a must for white-knuckle junkies' Guardian 'Lackberg is particularly good at portraying the claustrophobia of a small community in which everyone knows everyone else and the police may well be friends with killers' The Times 'Camilla Lackberg is probably the hottest female writer in Sweden at the moment... Lackberg's job is to make the reader pleasurably uncomfortable - one of her ironclad skills' Barry Forshaw, Independent 'Chilly, deceptive and lucid, just like the icy environment it describes' Literary Review 'Both chilling and thrilling' Sun 'Heart-stopping and heart-warming, The Ice Princess is a masterclass in Scandinavian crime writing' Val McDermid
